Bacary Sagna has come out of surgery successfully, with the France international sending his fans a message on twitter to let them know that he is doing ok.
Sagna left the pitch on a stretcher in Arsenal’s North London derby against Spurs on Sunday afternoon, colliding with Benoit Assou-Ekotto. The club confirmed later that day that he had a broken leg and would be out for three months.
“The club can confirm that Bacary Sagna sustained a fracture to the fibula in his right leg during the match against Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon,” a club statement said at the time.
“It is expected that Bacary will be out for approximately three months and a surgical procedure cannot be ruled out at this stage.”
And today, he undertook surgery which has been deemed by both the club and Sagna himself as successful.
“The surgery went according to plan and there has been no significant alteration to the initial prognosis that Bacary will be out of action for a minimum of three months,” Arsenal confirmed.
And Sagna tweeted from his hospital bed that he was in good spirits, telling fans: “Hello my friends. thanks for your support. just woke up from surgery and still feel high, lol hope to recover and be back soon. I send u my [love].”
Arsenal are hopeful that Sagna will make a return around Christmas, and it won't be a moment too soon, with Arsene Wenger’s injury list deepening for the side and leaving the Gunners manager with limited options in defence.
